Spider pig, Spider pig

Today Tim and I went to Burke Williams spa for facials and massages to celebrate our anniversary. I love it there. Both therapists told Tim he needed to have a massage and a facial every month. What? Will they be paying the bill too? =) This is a luxury people!
Anyway, after our excellent morning we went to see the Simpsons movie. Tim and I of course are huge Simpsons fans and were really looking forward to this movie. It was pretty funny and they really took advantage of the PG-13 an example, they do a big scene about Bart getting naked and skateboarding through the town and they do a great job of covering up his bits and pieces. Of course, just when you think it's over they show everything. Nothing spruces up your Saturday like animated balls. =)
Oh yeah, in regards to the title of this post, go onto iTunes and look up the soundtrack to the Simpsons movie and play the track called "Spider pig". Enjoy!

We had to have our hamster honey put down last night. We think she fell and broke her back. When we got home she was all curled up in a ball and not moving. We took her to the vet and they said it was best to just help her go to sleep. Sad times in the O'Connor household.

Tim and I went to see Ratatouille today. It was very cute although not the best Pixar/Disney combo as of late. Tim and I went to lunch after and spent the whole time talking about old vs new Disney cartoons. I miss the old Disney films like Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast, where you knew all the words to the songs. I think that Pixar and Disney now make movies that try to appeal too much to the parents to keep them interested and that they pride themselves on having clever and witty dialogue rather than a good basic story and great music. It also seems to be about how many famous people they can have in their movies. How is it that all of us at 28 years old can sing the words to "part of your world" from The Little Mermaid? Beacuse it was a great movie with great music. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the new Pixar movies. But nothing will ever replace classic Disney for me. And just in case you are wondering, my favorite Disney movie is the Hunchback of Notre Dame (I know, obscure right =))

December 1963 (Oh what a night)

So I went to see Jersey Boys in the city today with my parents. I grew up listening to Frankie Valli so I was excited to see the interpretation of the life of the Four Seasons. So....Jersey Boys is one of the best musicals I have ever seen and I've seen a lot: Cats, Les Miz (2x), Phantom (3x), We will rock you, Lion King...this one is rapidly becoming one of my favorites. The actors were all wonderful. The singing was unbelievable. The guy that played Frankie had a falsetto just like him. It was a really great show and so much fun to listen to. I'm for sure buying the soundtrack!
Now, if I can only stop going round the house singing..Sheeeeeeeeeerrrrrrry baby! (Sherry baby)
